when to acquire drainage services in London

Drainage Will Always Be A Problem

Some potentially problematical household issues can be avoided if you hire the right services at the right time. You can prevent sediment from building up in your radiators, for example, by having the system flushed regularly. By being vigilant about what goes down your waste disposal unit, you’re more likely to keep it in good working order. Your drains, on the other hand, are mostly out of sight, out of mind, and that makes them more difficult to safeguard. And that’s where our drainage specialists in London can be invaluable.

No matter how careful you are with what you put down your drains, blockages can nonetheless build up over time. Do you use soap to wash your hands or shampoo and shower gel when you shower? Those everyday household products combined with fluff and stray hairs can accumulate in your pipes over time, and unbeknown to you, larger and larger blockages can begin to form.

Your kitchen sink is another case in point. We all inadvertently wash leftover food particles and grease down the drain from time to time. When the grease and fat cool, they solidify, and again, with the passage of time, those blockages can build up, making it more difficult for water to flow through your pipes. This eventually results in plumbing issues. If you notice water is running sluggishly down your plughole, now would be a great time to hire our drainage services in London to clear the pipe before blockages start to cause real issues.

DIY Methods Are Mostly Inefficient

If you’re switched on and are aware that blockages are forming in your plumbing, the temptation is to try to solve the problem on your own. After all, you manage the majority of your minor household repairs, so what’s the harm in trying your hand at drain cleaning?

This is a common error of judgement made by most homeowners. They opt for DIY drain cleaning methods to save money and may try to clear drains with shop-bought drain cleaners or by natural methods.

Chemical cleaners available in stores may remove minor blockages, but they will also strip the linings of your pipes. These cleansers’ harsh chemical contents make them caustic and dangerous, not only to your plumbing but to you and your family too. If you use these chemicals regularly, you may find that your plumbing needs to be replaced sooner than necessary.

Using any chemical drain cleaner incorrectly could also damage your health and that of your family too. The fumes these chemicals release can cause breathing difficulties; and if small children swallow any of the solution, they’ll require urgent medical attention. These chemicals are so harsh, they can even cause chemical burns if the liquid splashes back onto your skin. Hiring trained and experienced professionals at Environ Drainage Services London is the much safer option and will be a worthwhile investment to protect your home and your family alike from accidental harm.

Clogs Run Too Deep

Clogs and blockages can build up in your plumbing for reasons beyond your control. They may form right next to your drain, but they’re just as likely to occur 10 feet or more along your plumbing system. It’s unlikely that even the strongest chemical – or even mechanical means of shifting the blockage – will reach that far.

Drain rods or snakes bought from a hardware store are not only limited in their range, but they’re difficult to manage too. You won’t necessarily be able to access any obstruction that’s further away from your drain than a few feet unless you’re a specialist with the correct equipment. What’s more, using drain rods to negotiate old pipes could cause damage to the fabric.

At Environ, we use the latest technology for our professional drain clearance in London. We employ video inspection to help identify the location and nature of any clogs and blockages. We put a small camera down your drain, and once we’ve found what’s causing the problem, we can then use our experience to work out the best technique to remove the obstructions.

Benefits of Hiring Environ Drainage Services London

When you hire the experts from Environ Drainage Services to clean your drains, you’ll benefit from the following advantages:

Save Money on Ineffective Solutions

Chemical cleaners don’t come cheap, and drain cleaners or drain rods are even more expensive. Plus, you can invest all that money to try and solve the problem yourself and then find that it still hasn’t fixed the problem. Our professional plumbers, on the other hand, have the tools and equipment to resolve the issue the first time, every time, saving you money over the longer term.

Clogs Run Too Deep

State-of-the-Art Equipment

Our professionals have a greater range of tools and techniques for drain cleaning, so when you hire us, you don’t run the risk of damaging your pipework. Commercial drain snakes, hydro jetting equipment, and video cameras are all tools we use to identify the nature and extent of the blockage and then the best means to remove it.

Hydro jetting is one of the most effective clog-removal methods around and entails using water at high pressure to force muck, grease and other substances away from the walls of your pipes as it flows through. You won’t be able to clear your plumbing this way unless you hire a professional.

Saves Time

Don’t you want to spend your weekend doing something you enjoy rather than trying to fix problems with dirty, smelly drainage systems? Our experts can carry out the necessary work in a fraction of the time it would take for you to do it yourself.

Saves Money

At first, a minor obstruction is merely an annoyance – your water may just flow down the plughole more slowly than usual. However, if the blockage grows larger and blocks the water flow, you could experience a sink that won’t empty, with your pipes backing up and allowing unpleasant odours and more into your home. And, in worst-case scenarios, your pipe may leak or burst, causing flooding and excess water bills if you’re on a meter. You could be just weeks away from a pricey repair if you don’t address clogs in their early stages.

Tree roots growing into your pipes might cause a clog in rare circumstances. This will almost certainly result in a significant leak that might need you to replace your sewer line. Rather than waiting for the worst-case scenario to occur, you can be proactive and hire our skilled plumbers to locate and remove the blockage before the issue escalates.

This simple precaution may cost you a certain amount of money in the short term, but it could save you thousands of pounds in expensive replacement and repairs over the longer term.

What is ‘drainage’?

The mechanism or process by which water and other liquids are drained from a location is known as drainage. To ensure proper drainage of waste water from your property, you need to ensure that the relevant pipework is clean and clear of any blockages. For this reason, it’s best to hire one of our experts today before any issues worsen.

What are the types of drainage?

Drainage systems divert excess water from a site. This excess water can come from precipitation (rain, hail and snow) or from taps and toilets within a property. Most properties have separate pipes for rainwater and wastewater. As the householder, you are responsible for the drainage pipes on your property.

What does a drainage company do?

Good drainage firms like Environ will begin with a CCTV drain survey to determine existing piping conditions, whether in residential or commercial properties. If necessary, we can recommend replacement or repair. They can also clean existing piping with high-pressure water to reduce the possibility of damage caused by a build-up of waste material.

What is the importance of drainage?

Drainage solutions in London for rainwater help prevent soil erosion, flooding, and so on. Wastewater pipes remove dirty water from, for example, toilets, showers and kitchen sinks in properties and conduct it to the nearest wastewater treatment works where it is cleansed, preventing polluted water from entering rivers, the sea and other bodies of water.

What is a drainage specialist?

As the name implies, drainage specialists specialise in water drainage systems, ensuring that water, sewage, and other materials flow as efficiently as possible between systems.

Our drainage experts can also carry out work involving water purification and waste water services in London, on private, commercial or municipal projects.

How much does it cost to repair a collapsed drain in the UK?

In the United Kingdom, a drain collapse is usually caused by a burst pipe. The price to repair a collapsed drain varies, but on average:

Repair neededTypical cost + VAT
Collapsed drain pipe repair cost£60 - £100 per m2
Drainpipe replacement cost£120-£600 per m
Sewer drain repair cost (materials)£500
Sewer drain repair cost (labour)£225

When should you call a plumber for a clogged drain?

If your drains are blocked, emit an unpleasant odour or can’t be unclogged with a plunger, it’s time to call in our sewerage services in London. Plungers can be successful in clearing minor blockages in your drains, but if they aren’t, you’ll need the help of a drainage engineer like Environ to clear your drain line.

Are blocked drains covered by home insurance?

Most buildings’ insurance policies cover waste drain services in London and damage to underground pipes, drains, cables and tanks (often called underground services) on the property itself. However, insurers won’t cover problems with pipes owned by water companies or neighbours, even if they’re causing the problem on your own property.

Why do drains get blocked?

Indoor blockages are often caused by a build-up of objects being flushed down the drain. Overflowing drains are frequently due to sanitary supplies, paper towels, or other hard-to-flush items entering the pipework and causing obstructions. Even hair, soap scum and grease from cooking can create a large blockage over time. Specialist drain cleaning in London can resolve the problem.

Do plumbers deal with blocked drains?

When it comes to unclogging a clogged drain, our drain water services in London can offer professional solutions to resolve a problem that home DIY can often not rectify. Our plumbers will be able to remove large blockages quickly and efficiently without damaging your pipework.

Responsibility for Repairing Drains 
and Sewers

In general, you’re liable for drains within your property’s boundaries, while your local water board or sewage company is in charge of the lateral drains and sewers that are normally located outside property boundaries. The Government now controls the majority of sewers, although some remain privately owned or unadopted. If one of these serves your property, you may be liable for its upkeep.

But before delving into matters of blocked drains in London any further, let’s first differentiate between a drain and a sewer.

A drain is a conduit that drains water and waste from a building and associated buildings, like garages.

A lateral drain is a section of pipe that transports wastewater from your home to a sewer. It’s frequently beyond your property line, often beneath the public pavement or road. If you and your neighbour share a sewer, a lateral drain may flow beneath your property.

A sewer gathers water and waste from multiple buildings’ drains. The majority of sewers are owned by the Government and maintained by your water provider. There are, nevertheless, some privately owned sewers. Some people use a cesspool, septic tank, or treatment plant instead of a sewer. You won’t have to pay sewerage rates to a sewerage company if you aren’t linked to one.

Any drains inside the boundaries of your property are your private drains, and you are responsible for maintaining or repairing them. Your water company is responsible for maintaining and repairing lateral drains that you share with your neighbour.

You will have to pay to have work done on your private drains, so it’s often a lot more cost-effective to hire Environ, the top drainage company in London, to ensure the job’s done right. You might also take out insurance to cover the cost of work on your drains.

Benefits of Hiring a Blocked Drain Plumber

While plumbers are often associated with installing new sinks, baths and so on, one of their most important roles is when it comes to drain unblocking in London and beyond. The advantage of hiring our professionals for plumbing services such as these, as well as making life more comfortable and stress-free for you, is that we have all the professional equipment and skills to carry out the job without running the risk of damaging your property.

Our plumbers can, for instance, carry out a CCTV drain survey in London to locate the exact location and nature of any blockage, meaning it’s quicker and easier to determine the right way to handle the problem. This can minimise the expense of a DIY trial and error approach and speed up the resolution of the issue so you can get back to normal daily life.
